An oddity in the camp horror genre, in which the humor is never as imaginative or ably filmed as the violence. Rory Calhoun, aloof and rather dignified, plays Farmer Vincent, who runs a smoked-meat factory as an adjunct to his sinister motel. The tone of this 1980 feature is too muddled for it to be really memorable, but it's impressively slick, with intimations of the adult decadence themes that informed Roger Corman's Poe films of the 60s. Kevin Connor directed. R, 102 min.
